The Gilded Cage
I started this Kathy Barrick-Dieter design yesterday evening. c.2000
I am using DMC floss colors that resemble the photograph on the pattern. Stitched on 28-count sandstone linen [Wichelt].
This is the photograph on the pattern:
I'd like to stitch up a couple Carraige House freebies, too. There are some lovely photographs on the Freebie Gallery Blog. Such talented stitchers & bloggers!

Hello! It's time for this week's SBQ!
***** Today's SBQ was suggested Kathryn and is:
How many needles do you use during a project? Have you ever loaded up a needle for every color? Do you use a new needle for every project or recycle your favorite needle?
ANSWER: I'm a disorganized stitcher. I have a lot of needles that I have scattered on my desk. I just grab the needle closest to me. I never even thought to load needles with fiber colors. I thread the needles as I need them & put them into a pincushion threaded or unthreaded while they are 'resting' : )
I like using Piecemaker tapestry needles. I think those are my favorite ones.
